IMHO it is without question *just you*. Personally, they're among the very few
icons that are bright, colorful and _easy_ to identify. The problem I see for
newbies is that gnome isn't as inviting as kde because _a lot_ of the icons and
themes use dark or matte colors (not bad in my book) which tends to make them
unreadable (_very, very_ bad in my book). This is one of the many reasons that
kde is so much more popular with newbies. It's more M$-like - true - but one of
the main reasons that kde is M$-like is the polish of there brightly colored
"friendly" icons. This is something the new OOo icons have captured and again,
it's a _very, very, very good thing_.
